Instagram closed out the year with a few last changes. Here’s is a quick update:
Decembers Changes on Instagram:
- Voice Messages in DM’s: Voice messages are now fully functional, and can be used in one on one or group chats. They can be up to a minute long.
- Alternative Text Descriptions: You can now place a text description of what’s happening in your image or video. This text can be picked up as SEO, and will be more impactful in search optimization in the future.
- Mutual Followers: Instagram now allows you to see the mutual followers you have with another account, very similar to the Facebook feature. It’s super helpful for marketing, as social proof validation.
- Shop Tab: When viewing an account profile you can now click a “Shop” tag. This will take the viewer to all the shoppable posts in a feed.
We hope these updates were helpful. Understanding and using these features can help you grow your Instagram Account!
